Decemberists – Soldiering Life chords

Chords
Transpose:
VERSE 1

D C#Ambling madly all over the town
DThe arbor wall you likened to a whisper
C#I likened to a radio.
D C#You were a brickbat, a bowery tough,
DSo rough they culled you from a cartoon.
C#Pulled out of your pantaloons.
CHORUS
A AbBut you, my brother in arms,
F#m EI'd rather I'd lose my limbs than let you come to harm.
A AbBut you, my bombazine doll
F#m EThe bullets may singe your skin and the mortars may fall.
A EBut I have never felt so much light
F#m DThan tonight, huddled in the trenches,
AGazing on the battlefield.
EOur rifles blaze away.
G DWe blaze away. Oh Oh Oh
VERSE 2
D C#Corporal Bradley of regiment five
DIn proud array, standing by the bathing
C#Soldiers and the stevedores.
D C#We laid on the mattress and tumbled to sleep
DOur eyes aligned, swaddled in our civies
C#Cradled in our dungarees.
CHORUS
A AbBut you, my brother in arms,
F#m EI'd rather I'd lose my limbs than let you come to harm.
A AbBut you, my bombazine doll
F#m EThe bullets may singe your skin and the mortars may fall.
A EBut I have never felt so much light
F#m DThan tonight, huddled in the trenches,
AGazing on the battlefield.
EOur rifles blaze away.
G DWe blaze away. Oh Oh Oh
OUTRO
G DWe blaze away. Oh Oh Oh
A EWe blaze away. Oh Oh Oh Oh
G DWe blaze away. Oh Oh Oh
